Antique merchants desks similar to this piece can still be seen being used by cross legged merchants and shopkeepers at some of India's oldest street markets - including those at Jodhpur and Jaipur.

This item is a lovely antique merchant’s desk with a large internal compartment and slim-line drawer.

The lid lifts to reveal a large compartment with some storage compartments against the back. The slim-line drawer is idea for storing flatwork and photos.

These chests would make great work desks for artists and designers or children. Or alternatively these distinctive old desks would make beautiful jewellery or memory boxes or a great place to put your valuables.

They would make a great feature in a living room, bedroom or in a study.

Indian merchants would have originally used these authentic old wooden desks for working and keeping money, valuables, heirlooms, notes and records.

We also have antique brass padlocks available to complement our old wooden chests and trunks.

Size: W62cm x D43cm x H43cm

Due to their size/weight we are unable to accept orders for desks outside the UK.

Our old wooden desks are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition. For more information see our ethical policy for wooden furniture and wooden accessories.
